It’s wonderful to look back fondly at pleasant memories, recalling the pleasures of childhood, education, celebrations, achievements, friendships, and travel. However, memories can all too often take us back to times of struggle, failures, and untold challenges.
We pass so many milestones in our lives and there are cards that help us commemorate many special occasions, such as graduations, first jobs, first houses, and new babies.
However, smaller milestones tend to pass uncelebrated.
This Sunday is Mother’s Day - a day to treat, pamper, and celebrate the mothers in our lives.

I completed a big weekend project recently that involved an enormous amount of organizing. Looking back on the hours spent and work done, I can’t believe that I wasn’t exhausted by the time it was over…but I wasn’t.
But, by the Friday of the next week, I was dragging. The week was successful and productive, but I was whooped.
